KUCHING, June 4: Out of desperation, another Malaysian stranded in a vessel off Lagos, Nigeria, has sent a video to DayakDaily, hoping that his call for help may be heard so that he can come home soon.

In the video, Selvan Nagaperan who is an electrical engineer working on a diving support vessel said he has been on board of a vessel for seven months and he was so “tired crazy”.

He pointed out that Covid-19 cases in Nigeria has risen to more than 10,000 cases and personal preventive measures have been generally observed where business is like despite the lockdown.

“Today, the (Nigerian) government announced that all international flights will be postponed until end of the month.


“Please help. I have been stranded here for the past seven months already. I am so tired of the whole place that I am on the verge of going crazy,” said Selvan in a video he made and requested all to share.

Selvan started to work on the vessel since early December last year and since then, he has been stuck on the vessel.

“Please help share the video so that the Malaysian government can bring all 43 Malaysians back home,” said Selvan.

Selvan later showed the vessel he is working on and let the audience have a glance of how a diving support vessel looks like and what are some of the features found on the vessel, which is involved in the oil and gas industry.—DayakDaily
